Vornado revolutionised home comfort in the 1940’s, and today we continue to revolutionise the industry.
In the early 1920’s, Ralph K. Odour started work on a new airplane design. By the 1930’s, his patented Power Vortex design influenced modern aviation. The Vornado Plane derived its name from “Vortex” and “Tornado”, based on its pioneering aerodynamics.
At the start of the 1940’s, Ralph met O.A. Sutton, owner of a fabrication shop specialising in aircraft equipment. The two would change fan history.
In 1945, with designer Richard Ten Eyck adding the finishing touches, the first Vornadofan™ was perfected. The fan industry would never be the same.Visit website
